May 18, 2014, a year ago
It was recently revealed that Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley has been hospitalized due to alcohol abuse, an ongoing battle that almost killed him. Following is Whibley's message posted on his official website:
I finally realized I can’t drink anymore. If I have one drink the docs say I will die. I’m not preaching or anything but just always drink responsibly. I didn’t, and look where that got me. (I never thought I would ever say that! haha).
Anyway, I have my passion and inspiration back for writing music. I already have a few song ideas for new songs. Soon it will be time to start making an album and getting back to touring again. See you all sometime! there will be more posts again so stay up to date, friends."
